Hello Flight-Report readers, this month I started another flight to Hong Kong. I booked my ticket at Cathay Pacific Airways website. The whole flight involved a transit at Dusseldorf and London. This report will cover the the first leg from Munich to Dusseldorf with Air Berlin.
1. Part 1 MUC to DUS: You are here! 2. Part 2 DUS to HKG: Here! 3. Part 3 HKG to KOJ: Here! 4. Part 4 KOJ to HKG: Here! 5. Part 5 HKG to LHR: Here!
In the morning, I arrived at the airport with the S-Bahn at 9:00am. Air Berlin is a OneWorld carrier and utilizes the Terminal 1. With the Silver status of Cathay Pacific Airways, I used the Priority checkin counters with just 4 to 5 people queuing in front of me.
The departure hall at Terminal 1 zone A.
The security check was almost empty and I got through in no time. The boarding gate A26 is located exactly in front of the security check.
Our plane soon showed up at gate arriving from Dusseldorf. D-ABDY, this plane delivered to Air Berlin in 2009, almost 8 years ago.
The waiting area nearby the gate.
Boarding started at 10:05am and I was among the first few guys to broad the plane. My seat, 25A. seat pitch is 30 inch which is fine for an hour flight. But could be quite uncomfortable for tall people.

Boarding was completed at 10:17am and Pushback started 3 minutes later. My neighboring seat remained unoccupied while a man was seating at the aisle seat.
Taxing to runway.
Ready for takeoff.
At 10:28am, we took off from RWY26R.
Immediately turned right heading northwest.
Since September 2016, Air Berlin cut the complimentary beverage service on short haul flight. After the seatbelt sign was off, the crew came out again with the cart, where passengers were able to purchase snacks and drinks.
Seat pocket items.
The rest of the flight was uneventful, and at 11:00am the seatbelt sign was on again. An announcement was made to inform passengers that the plane had commenced the descend into Dusseldorf airport.
At 11:13am, we landed on 23R.
Spotted the Cathay Pacific Airways's A350 that will take me to Hong Kong.
Reached the parking gate, B27

Air Berlin chocolate was given when we got off the aircraft.
Thanks for reading!
Munich - MUC
Düsseldorf - DUS
For such a short hop, I really don't care about the beverage service. In general, I am quite satisfied with this flight and the most important thing was that Air Berlin sent me to the destination punctually.
